**Definite integration results in a value.**

Areas Definite integration results in a value. It can be used to find an area bounded, in part, by a curve e.g. gives the area shaded on the graph 1 The limits of integration . . .

**x = 0 is the lower limit x = 1 is the upper limit Areas**

Definite integration results in a value. It can be used to find an area bounded, in part, by a curve 1 e.g. gives the area shaded on the graph 1 The limits of integration . . . . . . give the boundaries of the area. x = 0 is the lower limit ( the left hand boundary ) x = 1 is the upper limit (the right hand boundary )

**The units are usually unknown in this type of question**

Finding an area Since 1 2 3 + = x y the shaded area equals 3 The units are usually unknown in this type of question

SUMMARY The definite integral or gives the area between the curve the x-axis and the lines x = a and x = b PROVIDED that the curve lies on, or above, the x-axis between the values x = a and x = b

8
Finding an area A B For parts of the curve below the x-axis, the definite integral is negative, so

Finding an area B Area B

11
SUMMARY An area is always positive. The definite integral is positive for areas above the x-axis but negative for areas below the axis. To find an area, we need to know whether the curve crosses the x-axis between the boundaries. For areas above the axis, the definite integral gives the area. For areas below the axis, we need to change the sign of the definite integral to find the area.

12
Exercise Find the areas described in each question. 1. The area between the curve the x-axis and the lines x = 1 and x = 3. 2. The area between the curve , the x-axis and the x = 2 and x = 3.

13
Solutions: 1. A B 2.

14
Extension The area bounded by a curve, the y-axis and the lines y = c and y = d is found by switching the xs and ys in the formula. So, becomes e.g. To find the area between the curve , the y-axis and the lines y = 1 and y = 2, we need

15
Harder Areas e.g.1 Find the coordinates of the points of intersection of the curve and line shown. Find the area enclosed by the curve and line. Solution: The points of intersection are given by

16
Substitute in The area required is the area under the curve between 0 and . . . minus the area under the line (a triangle ) Method 1 Area under the curve Area of the triangle Required area

17
Method 2 Instead of finding the 2 areas and then subtracting, we can subtract the functions before doing the integration. We get Area

18
Exercise Find the points of intersection of the following curves and lines. Show the graphs in a sketch, shade the region bounded by the graphs and find its area. (a) ; (b) ; Solution: (a) ( y = 6 for both points )

19
**Shaded area = area of rectangle – area under curve**

20
(b) ; or Substitute in : Area under the curve Area of the triangle Shaded area = area under curve – area of triangle

21
If a curve crosses the x-axis between the limits of integration, part of the area will be above the axis and part below. e.g between -1 and +1 The symmetry of the curve means that the integral from -1 to +1 is 0. To find the area, we could integrate from 0 to 1 and, because of the symmetry, double the answer. For a curve which wasn’t symmetrical, we could find the 2 areas separately and then add.

22
You don’t need to know how the formula for area using integration was arrived at, but you do need to know the general ideas. The area under the curve is split into strips. The area of each strip is then approximated by 2 rectangles, one above and one below the curve as shown. The exact area of the strip under the curve lies between the area of the 2 rectangles.

23
**Using 10 rectangles below and 10 above to estimate an area below a curve, we have . . .**

Greater accuracy would be given with 20 rectangles below and above . . . For an exact answer we let the number of rectangles approach infinity. The exact area is “squashed” between 2 values which approach each other. These values become the definite integral.
